I was identified as disabled in 2004 and re-evaluated for disability in 2014. Because of that, I've been receiving Medicare. But I'm actually a working disabled beneficiary. I've been with the company for 10 years. My cnditon is progressive. I was sick last year and the quality of my work declined. I'm told by my manager that I can no longer do the job. Intially we were going for reduced hours and I applied for diability through my company. I'm pretty sure my application will be refused. I'm out of FMLA due to illness at beginning of year. I applied for ADA, but I'm not getting a good feeling that that will be accepted either. How can they tell me I can no longer do the job when I have a 10-year history of doing well. I acknowledge that my illness has advanced and I no longer do the job well. Can I be fired for that:JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is NC, but the company is global.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filed for disability, what I had left of FMLA and ADA.

I worked 55 hours during the week I was in the hospital. They've erased the hours I worked in my time sheet.
